    I replaced the timer control upon initial failure. The replacement part failed, and today the second replacement failed. Assuming at least one of these replacement parts was good, what else would cause the timer control to fail? I suspect something associated with this part is what caused the problem in the first place. The timer resistor? Please advise, thank-you very much.
    For model number GTDP200EF1WS
    Hi Christopher, Thank you for the question. I suggest testing for resistance of the resistor. It should test 4.5K ohms. Hope this helps!

    How do you check the timer resister. Is it supposed to have continuity? Every thing else checks ok
    For model number dbsr463eg1ww
    Hello Glen, Thank you for your question! The resistor must show 4.5K OHMs of resistance. I do apologize however we do not have instructions on testing this part. I suggest checking the the manufacturer directly! Good luck with your repair!

    Hello....if your knob and post from timer is broke off, do you only need the knob, knob insert clip and timer? i see a timer resister but i cant tell what that is for. please help!
    For model number DWXR463EG5WW
    Hi Gina, Thank you for your question. You are right, you would only need the timer, knob insert clip, and the knob itself. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

    I have no voltage across the timer motor, terminal c and terminal t, with the dryer running. Could this resister be the problem my timer isn't advancing?
    Hello Billy, thank you for your question. Yes, it is certainly possible that part is causing the issue you described. I would recommend changing that part, or the timer itself. I hope this helps!

    Dryer will not start, fuse is ok, start switch and door switch both have continuity across them. Timer has voltage but does not advance. So is it the timer or possibly the timer resistor.
    For model number HTDX100ED6WW
    Hi Jack, Thank you for your question. The timer is one part you will need to check. There are some parts that you will need to check to see which ones are causing the issue. You will also need to check the interlock switch, the belt, the timer knob and the timer resistor. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

    When i turn the dryer rotary switch, the dryer turns on. When i let go of the rotary switch, the dryer turns back off. Sometimes it will keep running, but most of the time it turns off. What part(s) do i need to repair this?
    For model number DBB33OOEA1WW
    Hi Bindu, Thank you for your question. If the dryer is not staying on when you release the rotary start knob, then the issue is likely the switch and you will need to replace it. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

    So i was replacing the timer on my dryer and forgot to unplug it. Some wires touch and it spark now dryer will not start. Just wondering what could i have blown?
    For model number HTDX100ED4WW
    Hello Shereen, Thank you for the question. Sounds like the fuse, HTDX100ED4WW may have been blown. I suggest testing the fuse for continuity. Hope this helps!

    Would this cause my breaker to trip, the timer resistor?
    For model number HTDX100ED0WW
    Hi Veronica, if you are sure it is not a faulty circuit or overloaded circuit then it could be an electrical short which would have to be tested with a mutli-meter. Thank you for your question and good luck with your repair!

    Hi my Hotpoint dryer will dry on normal timer settings however it will not dry on sensor mode. It will finish but the clothes aren't dry. I checked the lint and this good and cleaned.
    For model number HTDX100EM1WW
    Hello Max, Thank you for the question. We suggest testing the Cycling Thermostat. It should have a reading of 0 when you test with a multimeter. We hope this helps!

        The problem was a broken wire at the door switch
        Take off the front panal. Cut off broken wire at the brake. Put male connector on wire. Then connect it to the terminal. Then put the front panal back on. Then test the dryer.
